Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper reports on a study examining operation of a shock-heated secondary driver across the entire operating envelope of a free-piston driven expansion tube. It is found that the secondary driver operating characteristics depend significantly on the specific characteristics of the flow condition. Key trends and characteristics are identified, and theoretical concepts are validated by numerical analysis and experiment.
